Once an important trading centre of the Roman Empire, and straddling the ancient Holy land of the world's three great monotheistic religions, Jordan is a tiny desert kingdom wrapped in history.
Stand on Mt Nebo and survey the land promised to Moses; unwrap a scarf or two at Mukawir, where Salome cast a spell over men in perpetuity; float in the Dead Sea, beside a pillar of salt, reputed to be Lot's disobedient wife; go just about anywhere in Jordan and you'll find every stone bares a tale, and those of Madaba's legendary mosaics tell more tales than most.
Petra, the jewel in the crown of Jordan's antiquities, is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The magnificent rock-hewn city of the Nabateans has been a favourite destination for explorers since the 19th century, and at sunset on a winter's day, when the rose-pink city catches alight, it is easy to see why this enchanting place has charmed generations of visitors.
Step into the magnificent wind-blown desert of Wadi Rum. The wind and occasional flooding has shaped the landscape into a panorama of pillars and rock arches - a fit arena for the spectacles of history played out here.
